Both the Escalade and LX 570 have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The Escalade has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged. The LX 570’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

The Escalade has a standard front seat center airbag, which deploys between the driver and front passenger, protecting them from injuries caused by striking each other in serious side impacts. The LX 570 doesn’t offer front seat center airbags.

Over 200 people are killed each year when backed over by motor vehicles. The Escalade offers optional Rear Automatic Braking which use rear sensors to monitor and automatically apply the brakes to prevent a rear collision. The LX 570 doesn’t offer backup collision prevention brakes.

Cadillac pays for scheduled maintenance on the Escalade for 3 years and 40,000 miles longer than Lexus pays for maintenance for the LX 570 (4/50,000 vs. 1/10,000).

There are almost 8 times as many Cadillac dealers as there are Lexus dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Escalade’s warranty.

On the EPA test cycle the Escalade 4x4 gets better fuel mileage than the LX 570 (15 city/21 hwy vs. 13 city/18 hwy).

An engine control system that can shut down half of the engine’s cylinders helps improve the Escalade’s fuel efficiency. The LX 570 doesn’t offer a system that can shut down part of the engine.

The Escalade has 1.4 gallons more fuel capacity than the LX 570 (26 vs. 24.6 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

The Escalade has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The LX 570 doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Escalade offers optional 22-inch wheels. The LX 570’s largest wheels are only 21-inches.

The Cadillac Escalade’s wheels have 6 lugs for longer wheel bearing life, less chance of rotor warping and greater strength. The Lexus LX 570 only has 5 wheel lugs per wheel.

The Cadillac Escalade may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 150 to 400 pounds less than the Lexus LX 570.

The front grille of the Escalade uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The LX 570 doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

The Escalade uses computer-generated active noise cancellation to help remove annoying noise and vibration from the passenger compartment, especially at low frequencies. The LX 570 doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.

Pressing a switch automatically lowers the Escalade’s optional second and third row seats, to make changing between passengers and cargo easier. The LX 570 doesn’t offer automatic folding second row seats.

The Escalade’s liftgate lifts up in one piece, completely out of the way of loading and unloading, while sheltering the cargo loading area. The LX 570’s tailgate’s top part raises up, but the bottom part lowers, getting in the way of loading and making an uneven surface for sliding cargo.

To make loading groceries and cargo easier when your hands are full, the Escalade’s cargo door can be opened just by kicking your foot under the back bumper, leaving your hands completely free. The LX 570 doesn’t offer a hands-free gesture to open its cargo door, forcing you to put cargo down if your hands are full.

The power windows standard on both the Escalade and the LX 570 have locks to prevent small children from operating them.

The LX 570 prevents the driver from operating the other windows just as it does the other passengers.

The Escalade’s power mirror controls are mounted on the armrest for easy access. The LX 570’s power mirror controls are on the dash, hidden behind the steering wheel, where they are awkward to manipulate.

The Escalade has a standard heated steering wheel to take the chill out of steering on extremely cold Winter days before the vehicle heater warms up. A heated steering wheel costs extra on the LX 570.
